Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 22, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 28 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, November 22, 1974 HOME OF THE WEEK -The Herald- At Home Design H34-138 Sq. Ft. Soaring costs for housing to- day should bring back the storey and a half home to the popularity it enjoyed for many years Technically it should provide living area at less cost per square foot than any other TLJ.B.4CL I '-i? rn H M i i it, 7 It, o CLOSET! iz SMS. a SLCOND PLAN GROUND FLOOR. us i sa FT type of home Like the full two storey house, it has basement under, and roof over, less than its full living area, but it has the further advantage, even over the two storey design, that its upper storey is essen- tially what would be unused attic space in a bungalow The house illustrated is a fine example of this design principle and it provided three good bedrooms, two full baths, a den that could be a lourth bedroom, a generous living-dining area, roomy kitchen and plenty of closet space on a foundation of only square feet. In many jurisdictions, it could be built on a 50 foot lot. A brick veneer exterior accented by stone and vertical siding and a bay window for the den, lend real charm to its outside appearance The plans include details for an optional garage and breezeway Your Garden Gloxinias from seed or tuber ISABELLE R. YOUNG F.R.H.S The gloxinia (Sinmngea) has brilliant, velvety, graceful bell shaped blooms with flar- ing petals available in just about every color from white to rose, crimson and purple Some people describe the color range as that of a Per- sian carpet These gorgeous house plants come from Brazil via Germany and were named after Gloxin of Strasbourg Some are self- colored others are edged or spotted with harmonizing or contrasting colors There are single and double strains and the hybrids are especially out- standing Botanically, it belongs to the same family as the lovely African violet, which is. of course, the number one gesnenad Have ever taken a good look at the leaves'7 Some are quite hairv in appearance while others are smooth and if grown under ideal conditions some measure 10 to 12 inches in length Albert Buell who hvbndized some of the best varieties of gloxinias once had a plant that had 102 blossoms open at the same time gloxinias are not planted until around February, you might give it some thought now looking through the different seed catalogues deciding what you would like to do When buying tubers make sure they are firm ar.d plump They can Cither be started in pots or in flats the same as for tuberous begonias making certain the concave indented side is up A loose humus mixture is best and may consist of half loam and peat moss or equal ts of foam peat moss and Set the tuber in this leading just the crown ex- posed Then gne a good soak- ing with wdrm watT but do not get am in the hollow pdrt 01 the tubT Keep in a UmpTature nf 65 to 70 dr rfnd do not worry ivinp too murh light at time soon as growth ears then remove to a Institute of J A A th< well-lighted location, but not in direct sunlight When the sprouts have grown to about two inches it is a good idea to remove all but one shoot (by gently pulling from the tuber) as this will result in a much sturdier, stronger plant with large blooms These shoots that are removed may be rooted for extra plants The gloxinias that were started in flats should be transferred to pots as soon as a good root system is established using a five to eight inch pot. depending on the size of the tuber Set about an inch below nm of pot with top of tuber at soil level Keep the soil moist but not saturated Do not get any water on the leaves and protect from strong rays of the sun Give a dilute liquid fertilizer twice a week, after four to five leaves have developed Gloxinias are quite easy to grow from seed, starting some time m February in a mixture of equal parts of loam, peat moss and sand The seeds are almost dustlike so great care must be taken when sowing them Double Gloxinia seeds come 100 per cent true to color and 50 to 75 per cent of the plants will be double with 25 per cent or so single Germination takes place from 10 to 30 days depending on how fresh the seed is Place a piece of glass on top of the flat to conserve moisture but do not cover with paper as th? seeds germinate more freely if left exposed to the light not strong sunlight i When large enough to handle, transfer the seedlings to in- dividual five inch pots being careful not to damage the small tubers which are for- ming Culture is the same as for tubers Gloxinias started from seed bloom in approx- imateK six to seven months Uhen flowering has ceased er-idualh cut down on the watering The foliage will turn vellow and die down in duatms the tuber is dormant nr at the resting stage GJ! off the dead leaves and store lubers in 1h" pots ;n a cool rJrfrk dry placf keeping the soil just bareH moist Sometime in Februarv when vigriN of growth are noted the lubrrv are fre" of soil dnO pirfcH in -i flat or pot and into growth a-, before HOME-0-GRAPH HOME PLANNING SERVICE 40 Jarvis St., Toronto, Ontario M5C 2H1 D I enclose S1 50 (plus 25 cents handling mailing) for Home Designs for Canadians Book 1 2nd Edition 3 I enclose SI 50 iplus 25 cents handling mailing) for Home Designs for Canadians Book 2 2nd Edition C Please send free brochure showing sample Home of the Week designs and other design books available n Please send an order form so that I may order building plans for the design shown above NAME ADDRESS (Please Print) LETH.
